Integrated analysis and visualization for advanced construction planning and controls

Objective

This project offers a novel integrated 3D planning and control environment for construction projects. While recent Building Information Modeling (BIM) and construction automation techniques have potential to significantly improve construction management, the benefits are yet to be realized for construction planning and controls. This proposed project will describe an integrated 3D platform for analysis and visualization of construction process data and energy use. Building on the geometry-based process modeling and simulation approach (GPM), it will describe a group of methods to achieve automation for planning-control cycle for detailed construction operations through combination of optimization of construction crew behavior and automated data collection within an integrated system. Construction crew actions will be optimized using reinforcement learning techniques on the simulation model. Sensor data will be integrated in the same environment to perform data fusion and improve progress feedback. Through collaborations with experts at leading universities at USA and European Research Area, this project is expected to make a large impact on computational modeling of construction systems. Moreover, it will contribute to the European excellence for the goals of virtual factory and energy efficient building.
